I really need to quit smoking. I'll be 48 in a month, and hack like a sob every morning. I was informed by my doctor that I have COPD, and that if I do not quit I'll be dead before I reach 60.

Thankfully there is a med that I'm getting prescribed called Chantix? that is supposed to be effective in helping a person quit for good.

Cheers.

You might want to check up on the (new) side affects of that, they are coming out with new warnings every month for the numerous side affects that are being reported since the drug was released in 2006.
It sure does help those trying to quit (a wonder drug), just hope you don't land in the percentage of people who get the side affects.
FYI Chantix prescriptions have fallen by 50% due to all the bad publicity the drug is getting.

Post-Marketing Experience:
The following adverse events have been reported during post-approval use of Chantix. Because these events are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure.

There have been reports of depressed mood, agitation, changes in behavior, suicidal ideation and suicide in patients attempting to quit smoking while taking Chantix. Smoking cessation with or without treatment is associated with nicotine withdrawal symptoms and the exacerbation of underlying psychiatric illness. Not all patients had known pre-existing psychiatric illness and not all had discontinued smoking. The role of Chantix in these reports is not known (see WARNINGS).

How do they fit all that on the bottle?
